Why you should join Portal

At Portal, we're building Shopify for Service Businesses. Our mission is to power the next generation of modern service companies. We help marketing agencies, accounting firms, and many other types of businesses to sell and deliver their services online.

While it is straightforward to set up a Shopify store and sell a physical product on the Internet, entrepreneurs that want to provide a service on the Internet have to stitch together apps and are unable to offer clients a streamlined experience under their own brand. We want to change this by giving service businesses the building blocks (messaging, payments, etc.) to design their own product and offer their clients a modern streamlined experience.

In February 2022, we raised a $10M seed round led by Ali Rowghani at YC Continuity and Lachy Groom. Other investors include Y Combinator, Liquid 2, Tribe, Addition, Slope, YC partner and Scribd founder Jared Friedman, former SVP Product at Lyft Ran Makavy, and Pipe founders Zain Allarakhia and Josh Mangel.
